If you have only One Drive the computer is telling you that the One Drive has "TWO" partitions. The main partition has the OS and Programs, and the 2nd partition is for reserve/OS backup data.

SOURCE: Adding DVD to Poweredge 2600

PE2600 has lots of spare power (unless you are already using all 6 SCSI drive bays) ..

You can fit 3 x SATA drives in the space where the (useless) tape backup unit is sitting [you can even buy a 'proper' enclosure = Icy Dock MB453SPF or I think the SNT-2131 will fit ] .. and you can split the power off the Tape drive (4pin) power socket ..

I've not found a DVD burner (only a combined DVD reader / CD burner = TS-L462C) .. however if you have a spare IDE port you should be able to use an external unit [you will need an e-ide cable & enclosure for the drive]

SOURCE: dell poweredge 1600 sc XP install

I believe you would need to install the Serial ATA card driver before installing windows. When you first start Xp it asks if you have any ATA drivers that need to be installed first.    My guess,since it is used, that you have not the driver for that card?    Give us the make and model of that card and we can help look for the driver,or take it out all together and use an IDE hard drive.

SOURCE: Dell poweredge 1800 scsi drive not found

Hi,
check if the drive is showing in the bios of the server,
shut down the server, take out the power cable, press and hold the power button so as to realease flea power, open the server, and reseat the data cable at both ends and if there is another power cable available in the server swap it with the existing cable plugged into the scsi drive.

and now try to start your server.
Further Queries are welcome

SOURCE: Dell PowerEdge 1400SC Can not locate hard drives or partition

You need to download Dell's Storage Managment ISO file, create a CD, boot the system with this CD and set up the array. This will also give you the option to install the O/S with no user input.

Why the hard drives are not detected, and when accessing controller from the BIOS no hard drive found only DVD drive ?


You need to access the PERC system at bootup.. Much easier to use a SATA HD and not use the PERC controller.

It depends on what type of drive you are using. Plus, you may have to specify the array controller drivers if your are using the SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives.

Problem to install poweredge r710 can nor detect sata hard disk


That is an impressive piece of kit. Is it under warranty ?
You should probably have it professionally serviced but you can always check whether it detects a known good drive. You can also test the suspect drive in another system.
Before you do anything ask yourself: What changed last (or recently)? There find you will that which disturbs the force.

Make sure that the connectors are all fully inserted. This means both the power and the data cables. Try different cables and a different power plug.

I am installing window xp professional but there is no hard disk to detected to install.. and there are 2 hard disks attached


If your hard disks are SATA hard drives then the XP Pro installation cannot detect these SATA hard drives because the installation CD does not include SATA drivers.
To install Windows on SATA hard drives, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

How to install sata hard drive on dell power edge


You have to "FDisk" or "Partition" the Drive before Windows will see it.

XP - Goto: Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Computer Management | Disk Management
Vista/Win7 - Goto: Control Panel | System and Security | Administrative Tools | Computer Management | Disk Management
You will see hopefully both Drives... Highlight the New One... Create a New Partion by Right Clicking or use the Pull Downs. It will ask size etc... use the defaults.
Next Format the Drive - Select the Drive again...Right Click Format using Quick Format to save time and you should be set.

I have lost the scsi drive on a dell 1600sc and would like to convert to sata. During boot up the sata controller is reconizing the 2 hard drives but, come but with "no primary drive found"


The best thing to do is reinstalling SCSI, SATA can only manage two disk per channel on this server, and the data transfer time is longer.

If you set SATA, check jumper settings, that is probably reason why you get no primary drive.
Also check bios settings , do hdd auto detect and save in bios if you want to use sata.

If instead you want to go back to SCSI, download the drivers from the link below.

Download page from Dell.
